Four American friends, badly needing money, decide to make a commando-like raid into a South American country and steal $5 million from the hacienda of an American-born drug dealer who lives there. The four Americans then succeed rather easily in stealing the money, but soon run into trouble trying to get back out of the country, as both the drug dealer and a small army of bandits each hunt them down trying to get the money.
Watch High Risk (1981) because…
This movie has everything! Shootouts, planes, bandits, drug dealers, great locations, and most of all, a really good bunch of actors at the top of their game. There’s enough action for two Rambo movies, as lots of lighthearted comedy. This is a good action movie that was overlooked because Raiders of the Lost Ark came out at the same time. Recommended to anyone looking for a genuine diamond-in-the-rough eighties film!
